From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Value Investing for Dummies presents various analytical tools and methods for evaluating companies to see if they are true value investments. It does a very good job of explaining the methodology in non-technical terms with modest amounts of math required. The author includes lessons with some humor, which helps make the book more readable and a better teaching manual.
It does not provide a step-by-step approach to value investing, however. It requires the reader - investor to develop their own process, selecting the value-oriented analytical tools he or she wants to use as part of their investment process.
I recommend this book more than some of the deep analytical books, such as those by Benjamin Graham, which are better for the professional investor's needs.
